The Freddy Jones Band - Waiting for the Night - 1993

The Freddy Jones Band's debut album, Waiting for the Night, infuses a bluesy, jam-band sound with Southern rock tendencies. "Take the Time" opens the record with a rolling acoustic guitar lick suitable for a summer drive with the top down. "The Puppet" exemplifies the band at its best, with a driving snappy drum beat, airy harmonies, and a playful electric guitar that eventually bubbles to the surface in the form of a scorching solo. The groovy folk compositions evoke a sense of euphoria and freedom that implores the listener to get lost in the music. The resplendent beauty of "In a Daydream" dreamily matches Marty Lloyd's pacifying vocals with Rob Bonaccorsi's magical guitar work. In between the customary roots rock tracks, the band manages to experiment with other genres like the guitar-laden blues song "The Other Side" and the quirky folk-country ditty "Dixie Dynamite." The Freddy Jones Band's sound is instantly identifiable, and easily accessible, proving that they are definitely onto something special. -AMG
